3. Write a title for your piece, and then write your story. To write a title (headline), click within the “add title” field, then write your story in the “write your story” field below it.

4. Upload a featured image for your story — a key step.

The featured image is the main image that will appear at the top of your story. Ideally, your image will be 1200 x 675 pixels and under 1 MB. You can resize and shrink images for free using Pixlr. However, if you aren’t sure how to use Pixlr, just upload your image and we’ll take it from there.

Here are some guidelines for finding great images! You must have permission to use the image. That means if you didn’t take the picture, you have to get copyrights from the owner or find an image from a rights-cleared source.

The “Featured Image” tab should appear on the right side of your screen. Click on “set featured image” to upload one.

IMPORTANT: Even if you put an image in the body of your piece, you need to upload the same (or different) image to the “Featured Image” slot. If not, your story will not have a main image!

5. If you would like, add any additional images within your piece

To do this, click on on “+” button (on the right of every block in the main text editor) and select image.

You can also use this same process to change regular text into a sub-heading for your article.
